Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Would Others Enjoy What We Write?

light-bulb-illuminationReading fantasy has taught me to ask myself two questions—two questions that, weirdly enough, tend to get very different answers. One, I think, is instinctive to us as writers to ask: am I proud to have written this? But then comes the next question—one that is much harder to answer.

If someone else had written this . . . would I read it?”

“..writers like to write and readers like to read—and those two urges aren’t always the same. As a writer, we’re driven to create—to write something profound, something beautiful, something truly unique. We want to play with sentences and form staggering mountains of pose, to write sweeping, majestic masterpieces that will forever be remembered.

As readers, we just want to enjoy a good read.”

from Eli Landes in ‘Re: Writing, A writer’s blog’
